I had one of those that I made from orig drawings and used a standard dozer blade. I had it for tractor in my Avatar. Never got to push snow with it, sold it in fall. I did try to push some gravel in drive a little just to see it work. That part about locking one cylinder along the side of arms didn't seem right to me. Guess tho, the fluid just passes by and goes to next movable object in system. It did work!  The whole thing is only bolted on by the orig bucket swivel holes and bolts. The metal rests against the back of the arms, pressed there just by the weight of it. Never thought of downpressure, but guess that might make it move away from the arms.

You're right about it pitching away from the arms on downpressure, that's exactly what happens.  It still works, but it could work better.

 

It's pretty common to lockout and isolate other areas of a hydraulic system, especially if they are on a shared single spool or something like that.  I had a couple of GT's that were designed to lock the deck lift cylinder in order to use the three point in the back.  It makes the non-locked cylinders move stronger and faster.
